RE: NullPointerException while loading large amount of new rows into HBase, exception is thrown when trying to obtain lock for RowKey

FYI, below I quoted the customers' response after I explained the NULLException is caused by the row lock. So my question is if this is allowed situation for multiple threads/process to compete for the lock, the one who did not get should be considered normal and not throwing NullPointerException?

Thanks
Tian-Ying

Quote from customer below:
"Well yes, not only multiple threads, but multiple processes!
That’s why we need a lock.

Although I do see some practical problems, and am trying to NOT do the same lock from multiple threads within the same process, but it is needed to coordinate locks across processes"
